This line of investigation based on the port number makes no sense.
NetServerEnum2 (and the other RAP calls) should be the same on both 139 and
445 - at some level NetServerEnum2 is just an SMB transact and no one has
theorized that basic SMB operations (other than session establishment) act
differently on the two ports.   The 139 and 445 calls end up in the same
place.   Other theories - security settings, restrictions on client
computer name, restrictions on anonymous connections etc. seem more likely.
